After graduating college in ’99, Joe worked as an accountant for Arthur Anderson.  He spent the next few years bent over a desk getting as many billable hours as possible and knew it wasn’t what he wanted to do long-term.  When a friend offered him a job as a loan officer, he jumped at it.  As he processed the loans, he realized he could also be a customer.  So, he started buying one home a year as a house hacker.  He house hacked throughout the Denver area until he got married and switched to traditional rental properties

Recently, Joe left his longtime company for Edge Home Finance.  By working for a non-retail loan company, he’s able to offer his clients more loan products, from commercial loans, to fix and flips, and Home Equity Lines of Credit (HELOCs).  Instead of having to go to individual lenders for each loan, Joe can serve as a one-stop shop and oversee the entire process.  And since he doesn’t have to pay money for a building with conference rooms and fancy accessories, he’s able to pass the savings onto his clients.  With climbing interest rates, these savings give him a substantial edge over other lenders.  Check out the podcast to learn more about Joe’s products and his advice for investing in a high-rate environment.
